    What amazing pics. Is that a bird feeder the bear is raiding? Seems like these fellows are pretty bold, do they go away if people are about? Sorry about all the questions, but we don't have bears here. We have snakes, but they mostly disappear if you make a lot of noise or the dogs are around (still wear boots when I go down the hill to the woodshed though!).

    Yep I would've wet my undies. That scared me and I'm not there. And I thought it was bad when the coons would raid my birdfeeder, and throw it on the ground. I'll take coons any day over that!

    He has been around since he was little his mother used to bring her cubs around. One year she had 2 yearlings and 3 new babies in out chicken run.They often come around we have pictures when we were standing outside and he was just casually raiding our feeder.He didnt stay long he didnt like the dog barking at him you can scare them away if you make alot of noise but I love to see them We usually have to fix or buy new feeders though

    I don't think I would want a bear in my yard! I like the squirrels we have better :)

    Thanks for explaining...I think they are just beautiful creatures. I would feel pretty honoured having such an amazing animal visit my garden too.

    Yes, I too would have felt honored that he wanted to eat the seeds from my birdfeeder - at least for a short while. But if they are like squirrels they become annoying house eaters and then the love affair is over.

    To us city folk it is a wonder to know that these marvelous animals meander around our living spaces. Congratulations to you for correctly co-mingling. ;')

    Reminds me of the visit to Yellowstone when we had to eat lunch in the car because a momma bear was on our picnic table!

    If you dont act threatening they wont attack the only reason they might is if there is a mother with a babyand you get between them but these bears are very pieceful and usually run before attacking I just love to watch them..My husband and I were sitting near our fireplace which is about 10 feet away from the feeders in the picture and being a nice night we were almost snoozing then I looked over and I saw a shadow it was a bear he had snuck down to the feeder right near us but when I spoke to tell my husband I spooked the bear and he left that was a bit scary cause for such a big creature we didnt even hear him

    Oh my gosh! That would scare the living heck out of me! I though bears were more nocturnal? Yes, no?

    Is this the first time?
